fiscal cliff. president obama saying he is modestly optimistic that they can come up with a plan in time. on friday, president obama met with the four top congressional leaders here at the white house for about an hour. sources close to those talks say that the president gave lawmakers two options, either come up with a plan that can make it through both chambers or put his proposal up for a vote. under the president's plan, the bush-era tax cuts would be extended for those making $250,000 or less with rates allowed to raise on top income earners. it would also extend unemployment insurance benefits. president obama saying the time for action is now. >> the american people are not going to have any patience for a politically self-inflicted wound. ordinary folks, they do their jobs. they meet deadlines. they sit down, and they discuss things and then things happen. if there are disagreements, they sort through the disagreements. the notion that our elected leadership can't do the same thing is mind-boggling to them. it needs to stop. >> reporter: and congressional leaders called frid

thought that people would do the right thing with respect to fiscal policy. look, we wouldn't be in this circumstance, you know, president obama actually extended these tax cuts with the intent that washington would take a more reasonable look at how we can phase in fiscal policy in a way that wouldn't do damage to the overall economy. and i think that's something we really have to be concerned about. you said earlier, you know, the average worker making 3,500 -- would see their taxes go up 3,500 should we go over the fiscal cliff. that's a significant impact to individual citizens. and so we should be very concerned about that and what that might mean to the broader economy, which some of us, i think, could put us in a mild recession next year. >> what is it with washington? what is it with our elected leaders they can't come up with a deal at this point? they have to wait to make it a cliff hanger. we saw this with the debt ceiling debacle last summer and now again. do they think this is a popular move? a good move? what's wrong with them? >> alison, you know, look, the real trave
